    What to Expect
    Once you arrive at the shop, please check in, stating your name and reservation time and present your international driver’s permit and passport.  Once validity of the international drivers permit is confirmed, you will be handed the "terms and conditions" and waiver to sign.  Upon signature, please hand the waiver to a staff and choose a costume.  All customers wear the costumes over their clothing so there is no changing room but there are lockers for your personal belongings.  Once all the participants are ready, you will be briefed on how to operate the karts and lecture you on safety precautions.  After the lecture, you will hop in a kart and turn on the engine.  Once all engines are running, then the Guide will lead the group on to the tour. 

     

    Once you leave the shop, the excitement begins!

     

    As long as you know how to drive a regular car, handling a kart is not so difficult. Just make sure to keep up with the guide because 2 to 3 hours is definitely not enough time to see all of Osaka!

    You will not only see but drive to either the Osaka Castle or Nakanoshima, then drive through Namba, Nodahanshin, Umeda (center of Osaka), enjoying the unique Western Japan's culture!!

    The Japanese locals will wave at you, greet you with a big smile, and take pictures of you! A worm welcome you know you can’t receive just by walking down the street!

    You will have a short break in the middle of the tour. 

    Yes, you will be driving for at least 1.5 hours to 2 hours depending on traffic. 

    It may seem long, but most of our customers ask for seconds!  1 is never enough once you experienced THIS!

    We were a little nervous at first, given you’re driving a go kart through traffic in a major city, but the guys in charge have this down to a science. What an awesome way to see Osaka! We definitely felt like celebrities - when we were at stop lights, everyone waved at us and

    Absolutely enjoyable - will do it again for sure ! Our group booked for the long course at 7pm, so we beat the peak hour traffic. The boys looked after us so well, and made the ride super fun ! Not one to miss !
